Founder’s Brewing Co “Breakfast Stout” Review
Now that shark week has ended, it’s time to continue with other brews besides Dogfish Head. I picked up this “Breakfast Stout” in a four pack from Spec’s. This American Double / Imperial Stout is from the Founder’s Brewery up in Michigan and contains 8.3% alcohol. I love this brewery, so let’s take a look and see if I loved this beer: Poured from a 12oz bottle (bottled on 27Oct14) into a Spiegelau stout glass. Pours with a finger’s worth of brown foam that dissipates into a quarter’s worth of khaki foam (nice color change in head) within 20 seconds. Black in color with ruby tint. Bubbles are subtle. Lacing is moderate. Has strong aromas of alcohol and coffee that combine with mild bitter and earthy chocolate aromas along with subtle oat ones. Initial taste is of mild coffee and subtle alcohol flavors (I’m glad the alcohol isn’t as strong as it smells). Mild bittersweet chocolate flavors enter within about 3 seconds of initial taste along with subtle oat flavors however, both the flavors of the initial taste gradually grow stronger and persist well into the aftertaste. Light-bodied, not very creamy for a stout, very little carbonation, but has a crisp finish. This would receive a much higher taste and smell rating if the alcohol was hidden better, not unlike Undead Party Crasher from Clown Shoes, which had its alcohol hidden really well until the end.
OVERALL RATING: 4.32 out of 5.
